Let’s Eat / 2

I have gained 20 lbs. T-W-E-N-T-Y whole pounds. I do have the pregnancy thing going on, but still. That’s 20 lbs that weren’t there before. I am kind of freaked out. I am not getting any younger, and my metabolism wasn’t what it was when I was playing soccer every day. I needed to find some better alternatives to my hyper-sweet tooth during pregnancy. I actually don’t like ice cream, and don’t think I ever have even had  a milkshake in my life, but this recipe defies all reason. Trust me. It’s addictivly good, and creamy, and actually GOOD FOR YOU. Not, better than the bad stuff, but GOOD for you.

healthy chocolate, healthy smoothie

The ingredients are super simple and clean. While making this, I realized how much I like dates. They are seriously good. How come I didn’t know this before?

Recipe type: Drink/Liquid Meal
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1-2
 
The absolute best completely healthy drink I have ever had, hands down.
Ingredients
  • 1 Avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 2 tablespoons of pure cocoa
  • 4 Dates, pitted and chopped
  • ¾ cup soy or nut milk
  • Agave to taste
  • Small handful of ice
Instructions
  1. Start by scooping the avocado into a blender and then add everything but the milk and blend.
  2. Slowly add the milk bit by bit until you get a less of a pudding consistency, and more of something you can drink through a straw.
Notes
The recipe was adapted from a guilt-free drink I got at a juice place in Florida.

 

healthy chocolate smoothie

See how rich and creamy it looks? It’s sooooooooo good! I am addicted and so happy to make a smoothie without peanutbutter in it just because it has a chocolate base!

vegetarian meal replacement, pregnancy food

It looks thick, and it is, but it’s smooth enough to use a straw! Enjoy!

    If you are worried about your metabolism, you should check out Matt Stone’s book on amazon called Eat for Heat. That man has done more for me than almost every doctor I’ve ever been to. :P
